The East Side gay sauna
A total relaxation social/sex club for gay and bisexual men, with the emphasis on sex. Private rooms. Crowd can be sparse during the days but takes off at bar closing hour. Nice mix of mostly Latinos, blacks, Asians, bears, mature men, and the average Joe.

      Awful Experience
      AVOID THIS PLACE! I SHOULD HAVE LISTENED TO ONLINE REVIEWS. :( There is a coupon on the website that says "Free Trial Membership $5 Lockers" for Under 30. So I jumped in a cab (E train was down) on Sunday September 17 and arrived at East Side Club at 9:35PM. On the wall next to the entrance booth is a small plaque that reads "Coupons Only Valid Monday - Thurs." The coupon I saved on my phone from their website had no expiration date, no limitations beside age, and on the website it says "Coupon Valid 24/7" below this particular coupon. So I was ready to argue with this contradiction. Yet still, I was denied entrance. The coupon had to be PRINTED! Because people still print tickets/coupons, right!? To top it all off, there was no warning on the coupon OR the website that it must be printed to be valid. Me, being a handsome, young, fit lad who would surely bring good experiences to their clientele, I was amazed! "So I just came all the way here with this coupon, and you can't help me out even though the purpose of the coupon is to get new [young] business." The manager looked at me with no empathy and sated, "It's in the rule book. No." The only explanation here is this company is dishonest. I left at that moment.

      Midnight on a Friday
      I've gone to Steamworks in Chicago and San Francisco and this is nothing like those places. This place has a small steam sauna, a two tiered porn viewing area and a couple of showers. Other than that there are just two floors of rooms upon rooms. It makes it sort of difficult to actually hook up if there isn't a place to get things started (like saunas, whirlpool, glory holes, etc). There were probably 25 people there when I went. I managed to hook up with good looking young black guy while his friend watched. He had a great worked out body and was gifted in all the right places, but really I was lucky here. Most of the guys were pretty average built 50+ crowd. (Im getting there myself, but at a place like this I'd like a variety). They take cash only, but have an ATM near the entrance. It's 40 for a locker for a first timer. I found the staff friendly enough, but not overly so and certainly didn't get an attitude from the patrons. Located on the 6th floor of this address...so just go in and get into the elevator.

      Not worth it at all
      Went here twice and found it to be very unpleasant. The staff was extremely rude and the guys there were very nasty and aggressive. They also come with lots of their friends and they roam the halls harrassing guys who don't want them. The staff even encourage them to act that way to the ones they don't want there. It kills the mood and I watched several people leave because of it. Save your money.

      East & West Side Clubs are the pits.
      After living in NYC for years its unbelievable that these 2 bath houses are the best NYC has to offer. The facilities are mediocre at best w/ broken toilets, no HOT WATER in the showers on an ongoing basis, the sheets & towels are not always cleaned. And the staff are the worst , rude, lazy and constantly pushing people. They all should be fired & the Mgt changed. Stay away...so stupid that bath houses in NYC are like this. Went back last week & it did improve a little - unfortunately the staff is the same - the one manager is a good guy & the black beauty is nice - the rest of them should be shipped back to wherever they came from - Sasha, dred lock, old pussy mouth guy at check in at night & the big pussy with the long pony tail, the little rat - all have such bad attitudes - I just don't tip them anymore - did have some fun play tho - just make sure your sheet & towel are clean & refreshed!!! A lot of people won't go there anymore because of the staff(even the good guys on staff are disgusted w/ the a-holes working there) shake it up & get some good management& new customer friendly guys.....

      The "East Side Club" disturbed me.
      Out of curiosity, I went to both "East" and "West" clubs, and they were awful. At the "East Side Club", unsafe sex seemed common and hygiene was lacking. It had an uncomfortable and unsettling aura. I imagine they've upset others, and can't say I'd recommend going.

      Visitor to NYC
      Reading the reviews made my visit here a little anxious......god knows why, because I'm a regular sauna slut around the world. Expensive, hardly anyone there, rude staff, average facilities, etc...that's what I got. Probably I'll never go back there again...ever!

      is this serious?
      So I come from Holland to New York. After my first day, on my way to the hotel, I see some total studs and get horny. I look up the gay scene in NY on my ipad and find this club which happens to be only a few blocks away. It turns out to be difficult to find. Guy at the counter was not really friendly: I am not used to gay saunas where you have to choose between having a room, or a locker or just a towel. First impression: every European sauna / dark room is sexier. I enter the sauna and within seconds I am sucking a hottie. But he is nervous. I think: fucker, enjoy it. A guy enters and the hottie pushes me away whispering: body contact is not allowed!!! (he adds: sorry). What the fuck I say: we are gay guys, we are all about fucking. I start walking around and find out that every cabin has the sign: only one person per cabin!!!. What is this: a gay chastity competition??? Look, the US is often weird and full of prudes, that much I knew but this is bizarre. And I really ask myself why I got two condoms at the beginning: to do what with it?. Probably the idea is to sneak into a cabin anyway, but if the police is around you will be jailed for it or your will be in the NYT, punishment for wanting to have nice recreational sex with a fellow gay guy. I guess the NY municipality is to blame but why accept such 19th century madness? Whatever, long live Europe I would say. But to end on a positive note. On my way down in the elevator I talk to a cute guy who didn't want to pay 40 USD. I explain why he is right anyway. We walk up to my hotel. To keep it short: gay guys tend to get what they want one way or the other...

      Save your time and money!
      First, lets be clear that this is NOT a bathhouse. It is a sex club and not a good one at that. There are no features to this establishment. You pay $40 to get into it and get a room and towel. Then you just walk around to see who is there and have sex. No hot tubs, no steam room, no pool, no video rooms, glory holes, etc... just rooms. Oh, they do have an old steam room that has a sign on it that it was closed by the health department and looks like it has been closed for YEARS. There was a somewhat working sauna next to it although it was very small and had a foul odor. It too looks like they had to close it down at one point as the door is in disrepair. It is no wonder that the "younger crown" that they are trying to attract doesn't come here. There is NOTHING here for them. The majority of the guys here were I would say mid-40's and above. You may have had a few in their 30's but nobody younger than 30 when I was there. I am not sure what the laws are in NYC but if they ever open a bathhouse... a real one, it would close this place down. Anyway, it was a total waste of $40 unless you just need a cheap place to sleep for a couple of hours and can't afford the hotel prices.
